About me:

Recently appeared as a driven and slightly haughty wedding venue manager in Ep. 8 'No Honeymoon' in SKY's BREEDERS dir by Chris Addison, who said on Twitter "Thanks for your brilliant performance!"

Also as a judgemental charity shop assistant Janet in Channel 4's fantastic HOME with BAFTA AWARD nominee Youssef Kerkour and Rebekah Staton. Youssef and Rebakah were so generous. He said..."Smashed it Nicola! Well Done!"

Coming in October...a brief moment as a stern library assistant in Netflix's THE IRREGULARS.
